Lake Garden the most popular pak in KL... Just incase u need more info about it.. this is an artificial lake and it encompasses 230 acres of greenery and i tell ya checkout the flower they have there the stops and also other features.... Butterfly park and also deer park.
Lake gardens are KL's biggest and most popular park. It is located at Jalan Perdana. It is built around two lakes on 92 hectares of tropical garden. The park si so huge, you need to take a day to explore it in detail. It is so peaceful comparing to a busy city centre just a few miles away.
It is a place for the whole family. Children are amused by big dinosaurus theme park and playground, there is also a deer park, butterfly park, monkeys all over the place and lots of exotic plants and trees.
It is a peaceful place for joggers and anybody who likes to walk all day long.
I cannot phantom why our town councils love this dinosaurs creatures...I have seen it in so many public places...here in Lake Gardens as well as near my home there is the Science Centre and they have these same creatures!!! I guess children are attracted them...
this quite close to the children playground
If you are going to the National Zoo, it is worth a stop on the way to go to Lake Titiwangsa, I tis located near Jalan Pahang at Sentul.
Here there are many family orientated activities including riding on horses or horse carriage. Great to walk along the lakeside.
You can an excellent view of Kuala Lumpur and the reflection on the lake. At night, the lights come up.
Attractive place where you can also find the National Planetarium, the Orchid Garden, the Bird Park, the Butterfly gardens are within its spacious grounds.
You can also take a morning / evening jog here, and look at the girls and guys.
Kuala Lumpur has an impressive lot of parks and gardens. About 30 green spaces can be found within the city’s boundaries.
The biggest and most popular park are the Lake Gardens – in fact the city’s botanical garden - which covers 91.6 hectares. It is the city’s green lung and includes – as you can suspect when reading the name – more than one lake. Two. The bigger one of the two is the Tasek Perdana where you can hire a boat. You can also go jogging, and do other exercise.
The park is partly themed and includes an Orchid Garden with 800 species of orchids and hybrids (more info on: http://www.colorfulorchids.com/html/KL.html), the Hibiscus Gardens with more than 2000 varieties, and the Bird Park (http://www.birdpark.com.my). In the Orchid Garden was a shop where you could buy the plants.
The Bird Park is said to be the world’s largest freeflight aviary, with more than 3000 birds of about 200 species from all around the world. It was established in 1991. The nets are set so high above the ground that you really have the impression you are in the birds’ natural habitat.
Next to the Bird Park is the Butterfly Park with more than 6000 butterflies from about 120 exotic species. The garden has been landscaped to resemble the Malaysian rainforest.
Although I did not explore the entire 91.6 hectares I saw a lot of the park and can claim that I saw at least 400 of the 800 orchid species, and all the birds said hello to me ;-) And be assured, I sweated a lot. At the time I was there I sweated anywhere anyway – and in this park especially because it is not flat but also has up- and downhill areas. It was very efficient that “my” taxi driver accompanied me, so I did not get lost ;-)

An important building on the lakeside is the Parliament Building, 76 metres high and brilliantly white, opened in 1962. Its most striking feature is an 18 storey tower.
A huge park with 91.6 hectares of beautiful greenery built around an artificial lake. Now called Taman Tasik Perdana or Perdana Lake Gardens, it is located near the city center and is surrounded by interesting buildings. It has a jogging track and a children’s playground. Located within the park are the Orchid and Hibiscus Gardens, Deer Park, KL Butterfly Park and KL Bird Park. I was supposed to visit the Deer Park, but, unfortunately, the park was under renovation and closed to the public.
The Lake Gardens are close to central KL and are a peaceful spot to escape the bustle of the city.
The gardens occupy 92 hectares. We went round on foot but this was tiring in the heat. There is also a shuttle for getting round. If you do walk, wear a sun hat, sun screen and bring plenty of water with you.
The gardens most famous site is the Bird Park. Open 9am to 7.30 pm. Adm Rm 28. There is also the Taman Rama Rama - the Butterfly Park. Open 9am to 6pm. Adm Rm 15.
We did not actually visit either of these sights. Instead we visited the Taman Orkid - the Orchid Garden. Open 9am - 6pm. Adm free. We also visited the Taman Bunga Raya - the Hibiscus Garden. Open 9am -6pm. Adm -free. Both were beautifully laid out and filled with colourful flowers.
The park also contains a lake where it is possible to hire boats, the National Monument which we visited on a previous trip and the Hotel Carcosa Seri Negara which was once the luxurious residence of British Government Representative, Frank Swettenham.
This is a beautiful part of town. Starting from the Old Railway Station, the walk up the hill through the gardens is very pleasant. There are some interesting mosques and museums to see on the way and the gardens are immaculately maintained. They kind of reminded me of the Botanical Gardens in Melbourne.
This pleasant oasis in the city consists of man-made lake, a paddock, jogging trails, exercise stations & children's playground. Go boating in the lake or take a walk to enjoy the fresh, crisp air & lush green surroundings. By night, the lake provides a stunning reflection of the Petronas Twin Towers. Savour local delights at a resto situated within the grounds.
